    It's not too bad here yet but if a roofer is giving it a miss then maybe not good for the trad guys
    Mums boyfriend was a roofer and we used to go out in all sorts of weather as they seem to be a crazy bunch so if they are not working get the bacon on
    I'm off out in a mo with my wfp but not tradding more than 1 house today that the old dear don't like wfp

    We struggled in the wind yesterday and gave up when the rain came in. You can usually work in moderately strong winds wfp, but it depends which direction the wind is coming from. It its 'hitting' the front or back of the house then you are more shielded from the force of it. But if it's blowing up the street and catching you sideways/side-on, then that is different.

    Our last customer yesterday is on the NHS rapid response team. He told me that they were called to an incident last week where a window cleaner was blown of his ladders and was fatally injured from the fall. He said for us to please never use ladders on his or anyone else's house. I don't know who the window cleaner was and there has not been a report in the local papers about it.

    You know it's too windy when you can't rinse.
